Just picked up Neverending by D.J. Kirkbride and Adam Knave and loved it! Really awesome take on superheroes while paying tribute to what we love about them. There’s a lot of time jumping involved as it reflects on the unchanging ways of heroism throughout time. There’s also some really interesting thoughts, like when the hero is concerned their baby might be dangerous in the womb if he has the same powers. “Couldn’t just a kick kill her or something?” he worries about his pregnant wife. In the letters column, Kirkbride says the idea came about with the question: “Would it be cool to live forever? At first, yeah, of course, but to outlive your loved ones? Your family and friends?” The art by Robert Love and the coloring by Heather Breckel do a good job conveying the story and the hero throughout the ages. I can’t wait for the concluding act!
